Notes

The Bay Stars won their third game in a row and are now just 5 games under 500. ... The Fighters three game winning streak came to an end.  They are now 8 games under 500. ... Miura (YOK) stopped a personal two game losing streak and improved to 3-2.  Yamaguchi saved his 13th game. ... Darvish (HAM) dropped his third game of the season and is now 4-3 on the year.  Including tonight's game, the Fighters have scored just 4 runs in the three games that Darvish has lost.  Throw in the three no decisions he has and that 7 runs in 6 games.  Darvish's consecutive scoreless innings streak came to an end at 31.  He fell four innings short of the franchise record of 35.
